Besides our partners, we wish to thank the following individuals:

Mike Meredith, Will Duckworth, Andreas Wilting and Jason Hon, for their support, encouragement and advice, without which this project would never have seen the light of day. We also thank our teams of guides and porters, namely Stanley Jalong, Anderian Jalie, Lian Belait, and others from the villages of Long Main, Long Sabai, Long Sepigen and Long Kerong, for taking care of us and ensuring we are well fed while working in the forests. Our appreciation also goes to Ah Heng for ensuring our safety over treacherous logging roads, and all families upriver who continue to show us hospitality at their villages. We are grateful to Steven Lejeune for his creative artwork and for designing our project logo and also to Delphine Bodet and Bapa Hagan for working on the Hose’s Civet digital comic. We thank Ahmad Azuar Zainuddin for assistance with the initial development of this website and Lukas Clark-Memler for contributing his time and expertise in giving the website a brand new look. Our sincere thanks to Kuang-Hsun Chen (XioBa) and the Department of Life Science, National Taiwan Normal University, for allowing us to make use of their Tomahawk live traps for the duration of the project. We would also like to thank Zoe Averill and the team at Cotswold Outdoor for their kind donation of project equipment including dry-bags, map-cases and all-weather notebooks. We sincerely thank Bertram Duerr and Michelle Ferreira for their thoughtful gesture and donation during their beautiful wedding ceremony. Our deepest gratitude to Yoann Nohé, Wiggie Lim and Willaim Ng for their personal donations towards the project. And to Mr. Richard Hale, thank you for being someone who genuinely cares and for your faith in us.

This website is dedicated to our families. Ours is a thankless job, where the hours are long, the work never-ending and often frustrating, and the pay minuscule. In a world where too many humans act barbarically towards wildlife and wild lands, and many more stand by in apathy and do nothing, you choose to support us. THANK YOU.
